  • 15th century Frenchwoman living lavishly beyond my means until my husband's inheritance runs out.
  • <;p (That's an emoticon of me in a steeple hennin - world's smallest selfie!)
  • I sew clothing and do embroidery, calligraphy and illumination, ceramics, metalsmithing and casting, and dumpster diving when I think nobody is watching. I play the recorder (poorly), dance (occasionally), and I am not to be trusted in the kitchen!
